Daft Punk returned after almost five years away with their latest album "Human After All" a couple of weeks ago, but it didn't exactly set the charts alight like "Discovery" did. Although the album's electro dance stuff is very good, it's pretty tame compared to their previous albums. The highlight though is this gem, and for me, one of their best ever songs. It's very repetitive, but that's their style. With its pounding guitar riff, their usual vocoder vocals and electro guitar space age sounds, it's one super cool track. If you like Daft Punk's music, this will be right up your street. If not, this isn't for you. If it had only had a bit more promotion and airplay, this could have been a big hit.
They sprung to fame with naggingly simple songs like "Around The World", then achieved fame with far more lyrical numbers like "One More Time" and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger". Now they've come full circle, and are back to simple songs - only they've really gone too far. There's no vocal at all (not in itself a bad thing), but sadly, the production is simply about a few bars looped over and over again. I'm no Daft Punk fan, but surely even the fans would have to admit this is one of the duo's weakest songs?
